MEDIA REVIEWS
Jackson and Shapiro-Phim are the first to focus an investigation so cohesively on the political implications of movement. The result is a ground-breaking anthology that repositions understandings of the fundamental ways in which the dancer's body serves a range of human rights agendas from the oppressive to the corporate-controlled, nationalist, and liberatory. Dance, Human Rights, and Social Justice asks readers to re-evaluate the power of dance as a staged form of resistance. In the process, contributors reveal in more subtle ways the complexity of defining human rights. This book is of interest to an audience much broader than just those interested in the performing arts. * Southwest Journal Of Cultures, Summer Post 2, July 2009 *
A provocative collection of essays....The editors have brought together a diverse collection of essays that, when read together, situate dance centrally within ideological discussions of what constitutes notions of freedom and social justice. More importantly, the essays will also spark discussion on who gets to define such concepts. Dance, Human Rights, and Social Justice is an ambitious and inclusive anthology that marks an important resource for anyone interested in dance, politics, and social activism. * Dance Research Journal *
